If you are an MTN subscriber these are steps to follow to link your MTN phone line to your NIN

  • Using the phone containing the line you’d like to link, dial *785# then enter the 11 digit NIN on the space that comes up and submit. Also you can simply dial *785*NIN# (NIN being the 11 digit NIN you wish to link to your line).
